    If you flip the axle, make sure it is aligned properly and securely!

    And the best way to re-align the axle after flipping is how?

    Mine had guide pins on the axle. Everything just lined right back up.

    I plan on doing the axle swap on my 73 Starcraft this spring. let's hope its as simple as you said.

    Look forward to seeing you progress.

    My 88 had a bad roof leak but floor seams OK not soft but you got me thinking about the roof lift supports going though will have to get under it and check out the floor. good luck with your rebuild keep those pic coming :) [PU] [TV]

    I wish I'd seen this before you put the floor back on... In the rear, there isn't any support to the rear crossmember. My trailer had the rear crossmember collapsed by overzealous cranking, probably with the latches on, so the roof didn't sit straight.
